Eggless Plum Cake (Christmas Cake)

 
My parents are pure vegetarians. Midway through an extensive baking course I realized that they wouldn’t be able to savor all that I would learning. So after completing the course, I took the same course again, a pure vegetarian version this time. My biggest thrill was being able to bake an eggless Plum Cake for them! Here is the recipe.
 
Ingredients: 
80 gms Maida / All Purpose Flour
40 gms Amul Butter/ any salted butter
150 gms Condensed Milk
 3/4th Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 th Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Lemon Zest
30 Gms Cashews
A generous pinch of freshly grated Nutmeg (optional)
 2 Tsp Black Food Color
 
*
80 gms Tutti-Frutti
 30 gms Candied Peels
 30 gms Raisins
 30 gms Black Raisins 
Soak the above in Rum and refrigerate for at least 3-4 days ( I refrigerated mine for a month)
 
Method:
1) Cream butter and condensed milk together till the mixture is creamy and light.
2) Sieve together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. 
3) Add to the butter-condensed milk mix and beat well.
4) To this add the soaked fruits, along with the other ingredients and mix well.
5) If the batter seems too thick, you could add water to it.
6) Pour this batter into a greased and lined 7 ” tin and bake at 180 deg C till done (around 45 mins, or as per your cake/oven)
7) When done, let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes and gently unmould from the tin.
Enjoy!:)
